Shiver From The – Aprilia Test

Ever since the Hypermotard began both Motodisiac and I sort of on a quest to find the bike each one of us likes. We had drooled over the Hypermotard and the Duke a little bit. And both of us got pretty much both of those motorcycles.

The one in line for me was the Tuono.

Aprilia has manufacturing Tuonos for quite time now. All reviews I on it were raving. It is a great bike. Basically a street racer replica of the Aprilia Mille. I was excited and could not to get my hands on it.

At the same time browsing the Aprilia website I across another bike the Shiver. The styling peaked my And even though it had a smalled engine I still did not want to it off.

Motodisiac had some prior arrangements that he had to attend to. So I to betray our friendship and go do the test alone. I found an Aprilia close to my house, placed a call and 30 minutes later I was on their front door if I could take both the and the Shiver for a quick spin.

the president of the dealership was kind to let me test ride both prior arrangements or appointments. The one in line was the Shiver in silver

The bike looked even “in person”. The styling was I was excited. Once I started the I immediately noticed its exhaust It is louder than your stock exhaust.

Somewhat to my Futura’s Tailormade Racing Nice. The riding posture is with a rider leaning reminiscent of the Hypermotard, but without the moto styling. There I

The bike felt a little at first. But then I decided to my rpms higher, around 6-7 The red line is at 12 thousand, so I did not feel I was abusing the bike at all. And is when the true fun began.

The came alive, turns easy to take, leans intuitive, the bike felt and light. I ended up getting in that neighborhood. That led to a test ride which I did not at all.

When I came David had the Tuono ready for me. So any delays I went on my second ride. The Tuono’s exhaust was not as loud and did fell like a stock exhaust.

Something has to be about its brakes. My first light I braked and found stopped way short. The brakes on the are amazing. The riding posture is a bike like, with legs tucked in.

I was going to say “with your resting on the foot pegs”. being 6 feet tall my legs were not “resting”. position would not be comfortable for rides. Besides the seat was not the best virtue of this either.

The bike did feel and more powerful. Obviously the inspired 1000cc engine make you feel more than the 750cc Shiver I also was not too thrilled about the scheme.

The arrogant blue did not feel at home with the red and colors of the Tuonos.

I rode in to the dealership parking lot with feelings. The Tuono is a better and a expensive package no doubt. It is is more powerful, the Brembo are absolutely out of this world. I did not enjoy the riding posture, nor did I the seat at all.

On the other hand the Shiver was fun, nimble, comfortable to and had enough power for a … bike. Even though the felt heavier in fact it is the which is approximately 10 lbs heavier. was a shocker. It felt much lighter.

And it was SO MUCH FUN to ride.

comes the resume – the is a great bike. Just not the one fits me. The Shiver is the one I enjoyed and that fit me better in terms of the way it rides and its styling. Of course conclusion has been made based on a brief ride and some visual impressions. It time to develop a “relationship” a bike and a rider.

As far as availability and pricing go the Tuono’s been around for over 7 now. You can find used here and there. The Shiver out on the US market about a couple of ago.

So like for SuperDukes and it would be virtually impossible to a used Shiver. The good is that a brand new Shiver be in the realm of 9 thousand dollars.

By no I am an impulse buyer. However I did an “impulse”. The Shiver gave me :).
